Short report

Hydro-elasticity is concerned with deformations of elastic bodies responding to hydrodynamic excitations which themselves depend on elastic deformations. Problems of hydro-elasticity are coupled, which implies that elastic deformations of the body are dependent on hydrodynamic forces and vice versa. The mathematical theory of hydro-elasticity and mathematical methods of solving complex hydro-elastic problems are not well-developed at present. This is viewed as a major obstacle to adequate and successful treatment of problems of hydro-elasticity both in academic research and applications. The aim of the workshop was to identify and to outline mathematical problems of modern hydroelasticity, to review recent developments in this rapidly advancing field, to specify directions to solving hydroelastic problems and to establish contacts between international leaders and young researchers, which may lead to joint international and national projects on mathematical hydroelasticity. In order to achieve this aim, the invited speakers were from four main areas: Mathematics, Fluid Mechanics, Engineering Science and Industry. Papers in the mathematical theory of hydro-elastic waves, floating elastic plates, very large flexible ships, biomechanics, and marine hydrodynamics were presented. Several young researchers made contacts with leading experts in the field and new collaborations were established.

Introduction to workshop

The problems of hydroelasticity are important in biology, medicine, offshore and polar engineering, as well as in many industrial applications. However, the mathematical theories of hydroelasticity and mathematical methods of solving complex hydroelastic problems are not well developed yet. This is viewed as a major obstacle to adequate and successful treatment of problems of hydroelasticity arising in applications.

The aim of this workshop is to identify and to outline mathematical problems of modern hydroelasticity, to review recent developments in this rapidly advancing field, to develop new directions for solving hydroelastic problems and to establish contacts between international leaders and young researchers, which will lead to joint international and national projects on mathematical hydroelasticity. In order to achieve this aim, the invited speakers will be from three main areas: Mathematics, Engineering Science and Industry.

The mathematical theory of hydroelasticity should provide a rigorous basis for modern industrial and engineering projects. These projects are concerned with hydroelastic waves in the presence of ice cover in cold regions, springing and whipping analysis in the design of ultra large ships, dynamic behaviour of deep-water risers, sloshing in liquefied natural gas tanks with flexible insulation system, dynamic behaviour of very large floating structures such as floating airports. These topics and their mathematical modelling will to be covered during this Workshop. Each of these topics represents both an important engineering application and a challenging mathematical problem.

The Workshop at ICMS will allow researchers, who are working in the field of mathematical hydroelasticity, to become more aware of other theoretical developments in this field. This is the first Workshop which is focused on mathematical aspects of hydroelasticity.

Participation is by invitation only. People interested to participate should contact the organisers. The workshop will begin on Monday 21 June and finish on Thursday 24 June 2010.

UK Visas
If you are travelling from overseas you may require an entry visa. A European visa does not guarantee entry to the UK. Please use this link to the UK Visas site to find out if you need a visa and if so how to apply for one. If you do require a visa, ICMS can provide a signed invitation letter.

Venue
The workshop will be held at 15 South College Street, Edinburgh. All lectures will be held in the Newhaven Lecture Theatre. To view this room and a list of the visual equipment available click here. In addition, two blackboards have recently been installed. Follow this link for a map showing the location of 15 South College Street, or this map may also prove useful.

Wireless Access
The workshop venue, 15 South College Street, has wireless access throughout. On arrival you will be given instructions and a code for accessing the wireless network.

Registration
Registration will take place on the morning of Monday 21 June 2010.

Talks
Presentations should be in the formats .pdf or .ppt and should be brought on a memory stick to the workshop, or can be e-mailed to Helene Frossling in advance. 

Travel
Information about travel to the UK and Edinburgh is available here

The airport bus costs 3.50 GBP for a single and 6.00 GBP for an open return journey. A taxi directly from the airport will cost approximately 15.00 to 20.00 GBP to the city centre for a one-way journey.

If travelling by train, please note that Edinburgh has two railway stations - Waverley Railway Station being the main station and closest to the workshop venue at 22-26 George Street. If you alight at Edinburgh Waverley, the workshop venue is an easy 10 minute walk. The second railway station is called Haymarket and is at the West End of the city centre.

In the light of recent travel disruptions across Europe due to the Icelandic volcano eruption: IF YOU EXPERIENCE ANY DELAYS TO YOUR TRAVEL TO EDINBURGH THAT WILL AFFECT WHICH DAY YOU ARRIVE, PLEASE ADVICE HELENE FROSSLING BY E-MAIL A.S.A.P.
